Pair of Digamma armchairs dating back to Gavina’s production. Conservative restoration of all the original components including the elastic straps. Recently covered with “Pergamena” linen velvet by Dedar.
Digamma has been one of the first models to go beyond the limits of rationalism. Armchair formed by two rigorously geometric volumes, albeit imbued with the irony of its notorious “duck feet”.
Metallic structure, rubber padding, brass finishes. Three-position reclining backrest.
